Angelina Jolie learned to pilot planes for her son’s birthday
HollywoodNews.com: What’s the greatest gift a celebrity could give their son?
The gift of flight.
Knowing that her eldest son, Maddox, loved planes, Angelina Jolie learned how to fly them for his birthday.
“When Maddox was one and a half, we used to go to the airfield, have lunch and watch the planes,” she said. “And it dawned on me: I could fly. So I promised him I would fly by his second birthday.”
The Salt actress also admitted in a story posted on Showbiz Spy that she loves to fly solo.
“It’s the only place I’m completely alone — up in the air, detached from everything,” she said.
“Brad loves the technical aspects. He loves the checks, loves all the maths. I’m terrible at the maths, but I love that I can go anywhere and have that freedom. He’s more patient. I tend to drive it to the ground.”
